Major hires to speed up CMR Surgical’s global expansion

Medical robotics trailblazer CMR Surgical in Cambridge has reinforced its top team with two major hires as it continues its global expansion and commercial scale-up.

Chris Weatherall becomes Chief Quality and Regulatory Officer (CQRO) and Bertrand Weil Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO).

Weatherall is a regulatory and quality expert with over 30 years’ experience working at leading healthcare organisations. 

He joins from Phillips RDT where he was director of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs and sat on the senior leadership team.

As CQRO at CMR, he will lead global regulatory strategy and execution, as well as overseeing quality assurance across CMR’s products and services.

Weil is a highly experienced executive with a successful career in business strategy and corporate development for healthcare companies spanning almost two decades. 

He joins from Mölnlycke, Investor AB’s wholly-owned medical solutions business, where he was most recently VP, Corporate Strategy and Business Development. 

As CBDO, he will lead CMR’s business development activities as Versius is introduced into new markets globally.

These appointments further broaden the expertise of CMR’s leadership team, following a number of hires including Barrington D’Arcy as Chief Operations Officer from Space X last year, and strengthens business and regulatory operations following the Company’s record $600 million (£425 million) Series D financing in June 2021.
